Connor had another really good experience at the US Fencing National Championships. They let in far fewer fencers than the Junior Olympics – I didn’t realize this was more er… “elite” or whatever. He won a bout and scored FAR More touches in each bout than he did at the JO’s, a definite improvement. There were some bad calls, and a really terrible ref but that is how it goes.
We were too tired to do anything touristy. After the first competition, we went back to our hotel room to eat and watch Zorro the Gay Blade. After today’s competition we just headed home. See?
